Springsteen Broadway-bound for solo show

Bruce Springsteen is headed to Broadway for an eight-week solo theater run that he says will feature “just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music.”

“Springsteen on Broadway” will start Oct. 3 in a 960-seat theater, in stark contrast to the vast stadiums the singer-songwriter plays on his world tours, promoters said on Wednesday. 

Springsteen, 67, is expected to perform songs from across his 40-year career, interspersed with readings from his 2016 memoir “Born to Run.”

“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible,” Springsteen said in a statement. “Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work.”– Reuters
